    Quick learning of CRISPR/Cas9

    Targeted genome modification has been hampered by the lack of an efficient tool to create a double-stranded break at a designed location. The CRISPR/CAS system is an RNA-guided nuclease system for the targeted introduction of double stranded DNA cleavage. Originally discovered in bacteria as an acquired defense against foreign pathogens, CRISPR/CAS technology has been demonstrated to work successfully in all the common model organisms, making it one of the hottest technology breakthroughs in 2013. Targeted genomic cleavage requires two key elements: a homing device and an endonuclease. In the CRISPR/CAS platform, the homing device is guide RNA, or gRNA and a CAS nuclease. The gRNA contains a twenty-nucleotide target sequence…

    HISTORY: CONSUMERISM

    For most of history, the overwhelming majority of the Earth’s inhabitants have owned, more or less, nothing. The clothes they stood up in, some bowls, a pot and a pan, perhaps a broom and, if things were going really well, a few farming implements. Nations and peoples remained consistently poor. Global GDP did not grow at all from year to year: the world was an aggregate as hard up in 1800 as it had been at the beginning of time. However, starting in the early 18th century, in the countries of north-western Europe, a remarkable phenomenon occurred. Economies began to expand and wages to rise. Families who’d never before had…
